For this Discussion, you will explore the advantages and disadvantages of eldercare living.
Imagine you are middle-aged and belong to a family where your children are late adolescents. You have two teenage children and two very elderly parents. In some cultures, it is common for elders to live in an independent living community, retirement community, or assisted living communities. In other cultures, elders will come live with an adult child.
Post and describe at least one advantage and one disadvantage of each living arrangement (i.e., independent living, assisted living, and living with an adult child).
Note: Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources. Use proper APA format and citations.
